      Abstract

      We report the case of an 18-year-old man who presented with traumatic trapped penis after a motorcycle accident. Ultrasonography (US) and CT scan disclosed a trapped penis buried within the prepubic fat. Imaging findings of the traumatic trapped penis and the role of imaging study for this rare clinical condition are discussed.
